4:05am
know. >> good morning to you. fox news has learned that f.b.i. investigators actually confronted now former c.i.a. director david petraeus within the last six weeks about his relationship with paula broadwell. the f.b.i. uncovered the affair months ago before jill kelly, a family friend, went to the f.b.i. when she began receiving threatening e-mails from woman. her concern was that someone was trying to blackmail petraeus that. person is not believed to be broadwell. some are questioning why the president accepted the resignation in the first place and with congressional hearings on the benghazi attack set to begin, some are even questioning the tim >> are you going to investigate why the f.b.i. didn't notify you before? >> yes, absolutely. this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. there is a way to do it and that is just to inform the chair and the vice chairman of both
4:06am
committees. this has happened before, not with precise same things, but none of the four of us have ever breached that confidentiality. >> as petraeus was supposed to testify before congress on what he knew about the situation and the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, now that he has resigned, the c.i.a. deputy director will now brief congress thursday about the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. some members of congress would still like to see petraeus testify about what he knew about benghazi. >> we have a national security failure along in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened at benghazi before, during, and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. >> fox news learned that paula broadwell may have revealed classified information during a speech at her alma mater, university of denver.
4:07am
she suggests that petraeus knew almost immediately that attack was a terrorist attack, possibly to free militia members. but a few days later, petraeus testified in a closed session to congress that the attack was due to spontaneous uprisings in response to an am anti-islamic video. some congressional leaders now believe petraeus lied. back to you, steve. >> gretchen: that's a big question this morning. thank you so much. let's bring in donald trump to get his thoughts on this. good morning to you, donald. >> good morning. >> gretchen: so the question to me this morning seems to be why did general petraeus say that uprising in benghazi had to do with the videotape? as the head of the c.i.a. and somebody who had known terror probably better than anybody, why do you think he would have said that? >> he was hiding that. he was hiding obviously a lot of things. the fact that his scandal wasn't mentioned prior to the election that, would have had an impact on the election. it's amazing what's going on in washington. people are hiding everything. >> brian: they knew about this
4:08am
in the summer. >> right. >> brian: they started the investigation in the spring. how was it that the f.b.i. investigating the c.i.a. director and that's okay? >> it came to right after the election. it was 5:00 o'clock on election evening. in other words, everybody, most people had gone in and voted. it was mentioned essentially the following day and isn't that an amazing thin? yet they knew months before. so they wanted -- they knew this was going to be something that was very sexy news and people could relate to it. and frankly, they held it back and only a very, very dumb person would say it was just a coincidence. but it came out basically the evening of the election. unbelievable. >> steve: the director of national intelligence reportedly said look, you got to quit, then he quit. do you think mr.-- general petraeus should have quit over an apair? down in washington, there are a lot of people who have affairs and they don't have to quit. >> brian: president clinton didn't quit. >> i think the way it came out was terrible. the amazing thing with petraeus
4:09am
is there was a straight arrow -- you said, this is not possible for him. you know lots of people, you just don't talk about them. there are lots of affairs going on of the but with petraeus, it was so uncommon, you would never think this would have happened with petraeus, of all people. and not only did it happen, but the women were fighting over him. >> gretchen: apparently. more detail also probably come out. >> i'm sure. and by the way, there might be other women involved also. >> gretchen: what i think the american people should be interested in is what his job was, which was being the director of the c.i.a. and what did he know about libya? do you think that he should be forced -- to me, that seems to be interesting timing, that he resigns and then why does that curtail him, just because he resigned, from testifying next week? >> i have some very, very skeptical and wise friends that say he resigned really for that. he didn't want to testify. i don't believe that because i think this is too much trauma for himself and his family to go through, frankly, to do that.
4:10am
this is too big. this is too much of a mess for him personally to do. i think he would have been better off testifying, frankly, about libya. but there are those people that say he resigned not because of the affair, but because he didn't want to testify about libya. he should absolutely testify. they should force him to testify. >> brian: let's talk about the election itself. i know that brian williams was very critical of you in your tweets on election night. you were obviously going for governor mitt romney. what's your answer to him? >> you know, i tweeted a lot about brian and i tweeted very negative things about brian. i said that the nbc nightly news has become very, very boring, which it has. and he was critical of that. and it has become very boring. and a couple of other things. so he actually, i picked up 197, 137,000 followers after he and others mentioned what i did, my little attack on brian.
4:11am
the funny thing is, when i tweeted about brian, nobody cared. they were more interested in patterson and kristen stewart. they didn't care about brian inasmuch such is twitterverse. >> brian: it was a great compliment. right in the middle of the election, he starts reading my tweets. >> steve: speaking of the election, how do you think mitt romney ran his campaign? >> well, i think he's a wonderful guy. i think he's a nice guy, but he should have been tougher. he should have been out there more. he should have been on your show a lot. he should have been on lots of other shows and say what you want about obama, he was on letterman, he was on leno. he was on "the view." he was on everything. and he should have done that. the ads were bad and don't forget at the beginning he started saying what a nice man our president is, how he's such a nice man. i think he stopped that at the end when he was getting hammered. it was very sad. >> gretchen: you think it was more the candidate rather than the party? >> well, i think a lot of things were bad. $400 million was spent on ads, you hear all about the pacs and some of them were the worst were
4:12am
i've ever seen. they did one where obama was a super hero. and they thought it was bad: i thought it was an obama ad. i thought, what great ad. then it was done bay friend of yours -- by a friend of yours. it was a republican ad. i thought it was a democrat ad. and they had many ads that were better. it was a mess. there was no way the republican should have lost. in a million years, they should not have lost with unemployment, with the country at a mess, with benghazi, with a scandal at the c.i.a. which turned out to be revealed about one hour after the polls closed, there is just no way the republicans should have lost this election. this is going to go down as a disaster. >> steve: it's never a disas whenever donald trump drops by and he drops by every monday morning here on fox friends friends. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> gretchen: next up, the fiscal cliff, more good news. what it means for your bottom
4:13am
line if the president and congress can't get on the same page or should they? >> brian: then going green? going to save them a fortune. now yellow cabbies are seeing red. that story ahead try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase.

4:16am
>> steve: we keep hearing how washington is about to take us over the fiscal cliff unless the president and congress can get on the same page, do something. they've been kicking the can. what does that mean for your weekly paycheck. >> brian: joining us now as these negotiations move forward, charles payne. the fiscal cliff costs people between 2 and $3,000 per household if we go over it in january is? >> right. this is something that impacts every single person in this country, for the most part.
4:17am
even unemployed people whose benefits, that goes back to 26 weeks. so there is very few people that will come out of this unscathed. >> steve: there are a number of components to the fiscal cliff. and we're going to take a look at each of them. one of them is the payroll tax cut. that's going to expire at the conclusion of the year. >> right. that's the one that hits the most people. we all put money toward medicare. we've gotten a break on that. >> brian: social security. >> this is on the medicare side. it's about 20 bucks a week for the average person out there. we are -- considering how our incomes dropped over the last several years that, 20 bucks means a lot to people. so that's something that will hit every single person. that's something the president said hey, let's put that through. let's forget about everything else, let's put that through. the problem, though, for congress is listen, if we put through all the things that seem okay and that you want, then there is nothing left for what we really think is going to hurt the economy. that's small business. >> brian: the medicare needs the money.
4:18am
are you going to keep robbing that fund of dollars? >> absolutely. >> brian: the bush tax cuts, i heard this over the weekend from tom coburn, republican, and bill crystal, republican, that they're willing to allow the top tax rates to go back up to 39% from 35%. that's part of the bush tax cut. >> i think ultimately, this will be allowed to go through. but i don't think the threshold will be 250,000 for a couple. that's just way too low. >> brian: charles schumer says make it a million. >> i think it will be a million. my gut feeling says that we actually triggered a fiscal cliff which is more like a slope, so we don't fall over, overnight. but the stock market reacts, the american public reacts and then these guys get their act together. i think the compromise probably will be a million, which makes a lot more sense then suggesting a family making 250,000 is in warren buffet's category. >> steve: let's loot at other components. unemployment benefits will change at the conclusion of the
4:19am
year. depreciation incentives and then the sequester, or gigantic spending cuts. >> that's the other part of compromise. it's absolutely insane what they're talking about doing to defense. there is absolute lea no way they'll let it go. it can't happen. all of this being said, what we're going to see an incentive for people to stop working. we have record medicare, unemployment benefit, we're going to see a whole lot of people, anybody making less than $50,000 a year action they'll say what the heck. doesn't make sense. >> steve: just live on the doll? >> why not? >> steve: is a. >> it is sad. it's not america. >> brian: we're going to watch you as you fill in for stuart varney. we won't be sad about that. it will be payne and company. change the animation. >> it's me, baby.

4:25am
eight hours, from 2:30 'til 10:30 we talked. i unloaded. i promised myself i was going to be calm. i wasn't going to talk about the whippings, beating, screaming. the temper that he had. he was like a seething volcano walking around. i sat down with him, started out calm and i unloaded on him. and i found out all sorts of things about him i never knew. he did not know his biological father. never married his mom. he was an alcoholic who beat him and his mom. he had a fight with his dad. we're talking about a black man, jim crow south during the great depression. >> gretchen: you make the analogy about a tiger mom. you say forget about that, i had a junkyard dog dad. you came to understand him more, but you came to respect him as well because he held two jobs and he was just trying to bring home enough finances for the family. >> when you're a little kid, you don't realize what's going on of
4:26am
the all you know your dad is inc.ry and irritable all the time. i didn't realize he was working two full jobs as a janitor, cooked on the weekends, plus went to get his ged. and that's why my father was so cold and so angry. you average 4 1/2 hours of sleep for ten, 12, 15 years, see how you feel. >> gretchen: kind thereof a little beaumont had is this book for? because some will say this a story about you personally with your father, but you have a really important message here. >> the book is for anybody that has a junkyard dog dad like my dad. he was a world war ii marine. he joined when he was in his late 20s, stationed on guam, came back, couldn't get a job as a cook because he was told in the south, we don't hire any n words. came to california where he visited, thought things would be better. and he went from restaurant to restaurant to get a job and told, i'm sorry, sir, you have no references. he worked two full-time jobs as a janitor because and he my mom believed it was important for her to stay at home while he
4:27am
raised three boys. they did so on my dad's income as a janitor and then he saved up money to start a cafe. that's when we had a fight. my brothers and used to work for him. >> gretchen: the message you want to give to people is if they grow up in a similar situation, what should they take away from this? >> first of all, be appreciative that off father in your life, even if he's a difficult junkyard dog like my dad. second of all, it's never too late to sit down with your relatives. my female friends told me they had difficult relationships with their fathers and one time they sat down and worked it out. the message is, sit down. don't assume dad thinks something else. don't waste those years. when i've told this to people and they read the book, people have reached out to their father, mothers, daughters. daughters reached out it their fathers as well. >> gretchen: it's very inspirational.

>> steve: welcome back. >> brian: been two weeks since sandy hit the east coast. thousands of people on long island, new york city, are still without power and they've had enough. >> more trucks! more trucks! more trucks! >> brian: more trucks, more communication. the long island power company adding insult to injury. an official reportedly told the crowd in rockaway that they would need to hire a licensed electrician to inspect their homes before power could be restored and they can get inspection forms on-line. insensitive to say the least. robert moses in long island with the latest. robert? >> good morning to you and good morning, everyone. getting information on-line is an impossibility for more than 78,000 lipa customers here on long island because they still don't have power two weeks after sandy. where we are this morning, this is east meadow long island.
4:46am
that's about 1840 customers here don't have power. you can see why. there is still a lot of damage left over. there is a lot of work to be done. protesters gathered this weekend to express their displeasure at the slow pace of this restoration. power has been restored to 95% of the customers who can safely receive it. many still are not satisfied at all. lipa says power will be restored to 99% of the customers who can receive it by the end of the day tomorrow. there are still many people here on long island whose homes have been severely damaged and for them it will take much longer. robert moses, fox news, now back to you. >> steve: thank you very much. >> gretchen: firsthand account here with brian and your neighborhood. >> brian: yeah. >> gretchen: is it true you were leading the charge to try and get the power back? >> brian: i was one of the people looking for it. at first i want to -- you have a chance to see "60 minutes" last night? because of breezy point. you know of all the homes that flat up blew up. when you talk about the history
4:47am
of what breezy point has been through with the airplane crash into the neighborhoods to those who lost their lives in 9-11, look what's left of their homes. >> steve: dennis brady is a guy whose house was in breezy point. he was down in florida and he got a call from his wife and she said hey, the whole neighborhood is on fire. he got in his car and he drove for 18 hours. along the way he bought a generator and everything he could. he maxed out his american express because he had to get home to that. here he is on "60 minutes" last night. >> i can't imagine anything worse than being 1,000 miles from here and have your wife on the phone telling you that the house is flooded and the fire is coming. i couldn't wait to get in the car. i just couldn't. >> what did you do? >> i rented a -- ran to the store and got everything i could, generators, water pump. i just told the guy, stuff the car with everything you got in in place and put it in there.
4:48am
here is my credit card. >> maxed out the credit card? >> i called american express and told them do what you have to do. this stuff is going on the card. >> how long did it take to you drive here? >> 19, 20 hours. you know, i stopped for gas and kept going. >> straight through? >> straight through. >> when you got here what, did you see? >> devastation. >> steve: total devastation. >> gretchen: so emotional to see. put it in perspective, that's just one family. there were more than 100 homes that blew up in that neighborhood alone and that's just one section of where the storm hit. brian, you also had this kind of devastation in your neighborhood. there were homes that blew am on your street. >> yeah. they blew up. i still don't know what happened. one into the other. harrowing story is that people pulling out other people, old people out of their homes 'cause it looked like the whole block was going to go on fire with water up around their chest. having said that, those people have it a lot worse. when you're looking at a
4:49am
situation that could have been totally avoided. they said you have to have your homes checked out. so they got these certificates. then they said no, no. we have to send a volunteer firefighter to look at your house, who they're the greatest people, but they have no electrical background. they're going to check and do a better job and sign off on the house. so if you have that electric certificate, this say it no longer counts. here is the deal, you're not home. so who is going to let them in your home? i witnessed something, if it wasn't for peter king getting personally involved. if it wasn't for edmund getting personally involved and liaison between hundreds of people, it's 80,000 people affected and this stupid contradictory way in which these private contractors were hire to do imcomplement this strategy that was totally different than on the lipa web site. if it wasn't for them getting personally involved, interact
4:50am
with lipa to tell them how wrong they were as what was listed on their web site, nobody would have power today. last night finally at 9:00 o'clock, they ok'd it because the higher up high school to get involved. they hired people from the outside who don't know the area, don't have backgrounds. the guy who was dealing with this, his ring tone was from the "the godfather." he would sit there with a black car saying, you, you and you, you're okay, without checking your box. you would think would happen in the third world nation. but it's happening right here. lack of preparation. >> gretchen: hopefully it will be resolved sometime soon, but it won't get rid of the frustration. coming up, david petraeus calling it quits just days before the hearings on benghazi, libya. was that just a coincidence or was the timing too convenient? that's next. >> steve: on this day in 1975, this was the number one song in america "island girl," elton

>> steve: the answer to the aflac trivia question, anne hathaway, everybody knows that. the winner is anthony albany from the bronks in new york. meanwhile, speculation running rampant that general petraeus' resignation from the c.i.a. was way too convenient to be a coincidence. is it meant to be a distraction from the benghazi hearings set to take place later this week on capitol hill? petraeus was supposed to speak joining us with his preparation for truth is fox news legal analyst, peter johnson, jr. >> you remember i said a few weeks ago that i thought that based on the evidence we had then, this was the obama administration's watergate. this gets deeper and deeper every day. there is a report by jennifer griffin and adam housley on fox news.com that miss broadwell, the mistress of general petraeus, allegedly told a group
4:55am
in denver that the reason that there was an attack on the c.i.a. consulate and annext was that libyan militia members were being held there. now, if that's true, that puts a lie to all it this motion about a video. >> steve: where did she find that out? >> the story also reports that some congressional members were considering charging general petraeus, head of the c.i.a., with perjury, but withholding judgment until he testified before congress this week. >> steve: i read in the "wall street journal" this morning that apparently when they approached her and they said, what's going on here, she gave hem her computer and apparently there were classified documents on her computer. but petraeus said she didn't get them from me. >> she denied it. and he denied it. but someone is leaking the fact that there were classified documents on her computer. why is that being leaked? is petraeus now the fall guy for what happened in benghazi? either appropriately or inappropriately. the state department scenario is, c.i.a. was supposed to
4:56am
provide security. did they provide security on that day? we weren't involved. it was the c.i.a. operation. >> steve: as a lawyer, what would be the right thing -- you want to hear from mr. petraeus as we all do. what would someone suggests, let's subpoena him. >> i believe he's a patriot and so maybe this girlfriend issue is a red herring. maybe it's designed to hurt his credibility. who knows at this point? there are too many questions than answers. i think duty, honor, country wins out. i think in the end he will testify verily. if not, he will be subpoenaed by congress and compelled to answer questions l in closed session or in open session. obviously he can't reveal classified information. the questions mount and mount and mount and mount in this. why wasn't there security to begin with? how did the united states respond? what was the c.i.a. role, f.b.i. role? congressional role and the white house,? >> steve: a lot of dots that need connecting. thank you.

5:03am
this as hundreds of people protested this weekend over what has now become a two-week delay in getting their power back. at last check to their web site, there are 79,000 people in long island without power. strangely, that's a huge jump up from the 64,000 stated earlier this morning. no word on what caused the increase. nascar meets the wwe. clint boyar and jeff gordon' wreck causing an all-out brawl in phoenix. the fight starts when one of the men on boyar's pit crew grabs gordon, watch this, grabs him from behind, both sides get into it. even the drivers. nascar officials looking further now into the incident before determining any kind of punishment. gordon says his tension with boyar escalatedded over the year and he just got stead up. that turned into a huge mess. across the country, people thanking our military vets for their sacrifice. president obama laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown.

5:05am
intelligence officers, it is harder to take. okay. so then what concerns me is i could see how this is all a coincidence, right? >> steve: what a coincidence. >> when the moon is just right and you could just see it all work. on the posting on the benghazi piece, i don't know about the hold on it until after the election. perhaps that was the right thing to do, but i still think there is a lot of holes in this story and the white house. they have a huge victory last week. they deserve to feel their oats, do what they need. however, i do feel from the communications stand point, they could have been more sensitive to how people were going to feel when this news about petraeus was released because one of the goals of a press secretary is to say to the president, you realize what people are going to say, right? you realize what people are going to think? so one of the things i thought that president obama could have done is to say, look, i reluctantly accepted his resignation, but as a condition of that, i have asked him to volunteer to testify next week for the good of the nation. then they would have not had all of the conspiracy theory
5:06am
problems that are going around. >> brian: there is a little more in that. i have wond for it ties anything to what jennifer griffin said. when we were trying to piece together what happened and who was at fault, we were trying to find out if this tape had anything to do with it. it didn't seem like it had anything to do with it. when david petraeus put a monkey wrench into the whole process when he briefed privately leaders, lawmakers and said, listen, it looks like the video had a lot to do with this, and they came out scratching their head. like that's general david petraeus. could he possibly believe that the video was behind this? wondering if that's somehow linking? >> gretchen: why would he say this? >> when the news first came out, we were getting ready to do "the five." i said, i don't think anybody throws away their 37 year marriage on national television to cover up for a white house on an issue like benghazi. that doesn't make sense to me. however, is it plausible that they said, do this or we will expose you? and he said, i'll expose myself.
5:07am
>> gretchen: that's the question i'm wondering this morning because it doesn't seem somebody who would know terror almost better than anyone else in this nation, david petraeus, having served in afghanistan, et cetera, that he would think that it was the videotape when all evidence, now we know was pointing in the direction for even the average american that it wasn't the videotape. was it a quid pro quo. i hope to bring up the question. >> i don't know. i actually -- i don't trend towards conspiraciy theories. i find them interesting. but on this one, in the middle of the show on friday, when i was doing "the five," all of a sudden, e-mail from somebody that's close to me that is again, not that much into the news, not very political, they're at the airport waiting to board a plane to go home after a workweek and she said, i will never for the rest of my life believe that this wasn't political and that they forced petraeus out. she's not a political person. that's why i'm saying that the
5:08am
white house could have handled this with a slightly more sensitivity and care about how the rest of the nation was going to take it. >> steve: on our program in the 6:00 o'clock hour, we'd former c.i.a. operative, gary, he says it's very clear, he says the white house is lying. watch. >> pants on fire award. >> brian: who isn't? >> the white house is not telling truth. this is politically engineered, all of this for their own benefit. they had to have known. you would not be reading the c.i.a. director's e-mails and doing an investigation in the department of justice and in the f.b.i. against your c.i.a. director without informing the white house. they're lying! >> i don't go that far. i do think this is very strange. on friday as the petraeus is unfolding, jennifer griffin is reporting about an anonymous briefing given by the department of defense. anonymous means you can not quote the person, but they gave their time line for what happened and how long it took until secretary panetta was told
5:09am
about the unfolding situation in benghazi. so convenient, right? again, friday night dump, they put it out there. >> steve: 1550 minutes. >> you think that doesn't -- 50 minutes. >> that doesn't match up. how is it possible that the white house press corp. or other reporters accept an off the record anonymous briefing from the department of defense on a time line like that, but on the record, everyone else in the administration saying that there is no problems here. >> gretchen: the interesting thing about the petraeus story is the press will probably cover the libya story because of the salty petraeus element. so maybe some of those questions will be asked. let me ask you this, should general david petraeus testify next week? >> yes, i think he should. and i think that president obama should have asked him to do so. >> gretchen: will he? >> will he? i don't know. >> steve: he's a patriot. >> that's amazing. i think he would think just from having gotten to know him a little bit, i do think he would believe it would be the rye thing to do to testify. and so maybe he will go ahead
5:10am
and do that. i'm sure he's trying right now to take care of his wife, which is the right thing to do. but he also has an obligation to the nation. >> brian: the other theory out there is the c.i.a. has a way of expressing that they don't like the guy in charge. we saw that. i'm just wondering, is this the way of the c.i.a. letting people know, i don't like the way he was running things 'cause we've had heard rumblings that david petraeus was not making the smoothest transition there. >> now, that is the stuff of a brad trore novel. it's a great question. i don't know of the i never heard that they disliked him at the c.i.a., that they thought he was fine and competent. i don't know. president-elect obama he felt more warmth there. there is always tension between the military and intel. so then you brought that together in david petraeus. remember, david petraeus in some
5:11am
way, he was talking about running for president. he never said he was going to, but other people talked about him running for president. and when he -- >> gretchen: or you could know that other people maybe thought he was a threat politically. >> right. so they bring him to the c.i.a. which is pretty much a place where you really never say anything. and remember who swore him in when he got the c.i.a. director job. >> gretchen: joe biden. >> it was joe biden in the roosevelt room and i remember thinking that -- that was a sign of this is where you are on the totem pole, sucker. >> brian: okay. >> gretchen: interesting. >> steve: listen to dana perino. >> brian: the pot is too thick. >> i'm very glad you have country music here on a monday finally. clay walker. >> steve: as soon as we stop yapping, he'll be playing. weapon be watching you on "the five." >> thank you. >> gretchen: coming up, a juicy burger your idea of the perfect lunch? too bad. one city just decided to take the meat out of mondays. >> steve: then he made history for the first time in 20 years. voters elected a republican governor in north carolina.

5:16am
me through negative ads. instead, we defined our self through positive ads. i did not run one or negative tv or radio ad in my entire election. for the 10th largest state in the united states not have a negative ad and that person win, hopefully send has signal to the rest of the nation that you can run on a positive vision for the future and a strategy for the future and democrats, independents and republicans responded to it. we're very, very pleased. >> steve: sure. one of the things, because you weren't throwing mud, you were talking about the positive aspects of what a governorship in north carolina under your helm would be, the thing was you were talking about i'm going to create jobs. people, now that you won the election, how are you going to create jobs? >> we're going to get north carolina into the energy business like other states have done during the past five to six years. i hope to work with nikki haley and governor bob mcdonnel and
5:17am
convince the president to start doing offshore gas and oil exploration off the atlantic coast. we can form kind of a southeast coalition to bring new revenue to our states and also help make our country more energy independent. we're also going to look at regulations which are hurting our industries in north carolina, and our tax code is no longer competitive as it used to be with our neighboring states. so one minute i'll be working with nicky and bob, and the next minute, we're going to be competing against each other. we're also going to work together on obamacare. i think you're going to see the governors of this nation really have a big impact on how obamacare will be implemented and we're all working together on how exactly what our response will be with these incredibly new regulations that's coming down to the state level. >> steve: and mr. governor, while the president won four more years there at the white house, it was a big night for the state houses with so many republicans now running so many state houses across the country.
5:18am
why do you think that is? >> first of all, i think we've got a good president with other with other governors throughout the nation who understand the real leadership is now at the state level and we can no longer wait for the federal government to move to create jobs and actie future, is going to happen in state government and also in cities and towns throughout the united states. those governments that are closest to the people are probable will he going to have more impact on the economy in not only north carolina, but the rest of the nation and we're going to quit waiting for washington and at times we're going to work with washington and at times we're going to try to revise what's happening in washington, which is having a negative impact on many states throughout the united states. >> steve: that's a great message. you got a lot to do. so you better get off the air here and start to work. pat mccory, thank you very much for joining us today from charlotte in north carolina. >> thanks for having us. >> steve: thank you. good luck. meanwhile, does getting the flu when you're pregnant mean your

half a million dollars. >> actually i did the math wrong. it's more. >> steve: that's a lot. why are you doing it? >> i have them. we were supposed to move into a larger location. bridal dresses do not take dresses back. you hang up, they're yours. so we're housing them in my house. >> gretchen: what i love about you is that you're holding on to an old-fashioned tradition, which is called the honor system. >> absolutely. >> gretchen: and you are taking people at their word. >> absolutely. >> gretchen: had they come into their store and say i lost everything, or here is what i went through. >> either flooded out or my gown was in someone's basement and it's gone. definitely. >> steve: so many people now have so little and the wedding still is the biggest thing in hair world. >> absolutely. >> steve: you must feel like afirey godmother. >> hard for me so accept, but yes, sometimes. >> steve: hopefully people are watching and they would like to get ahold of you. how do they do that? >> what's really hard, i have

5:33am
reporting that there won't be enough qualified candidates to replace the thousands who will reach the mandatory retirement anal of 65 in the next few years. hiring will be complicated next summer due to federal regulations that require new pilots have at least 1500 hours of flying experience. that is six times more than the current requirement. >> steve: a senior citizen home in california trusted to care for the residents under fire for two deaths and more sicknesses. cops say two people died after the care giver unknowingly picked poison mushrooms from the backyard and turned them into soup of the they say foul play not intended, but the victims' loved ones are upset about how it's been handled. >> brian: the drive through capital of the world is declaring mondays meatless. los angeles city council unanimously voting to approve a resolution encouraging people to go veggie on the increase day of every week. the move aimed at cutting meat consumption for health and environmental reasons. it's a recommendation and cannot be enforced.
5:34am
>> steve: thank goodness. >> gretchen: it's a parent's worst nightmare action this child wandered out of his home without his parents noticing and couldn't find the way home. but luckily he had a guardian angel, his dog, dasher. the loyal pooch stayed with him all night long, keeping him warm and barking when search crews were nearby. it took 14 hours to find bit and his dog. they were in a forest two miles away. this morning thanks to dasher, both are doing just fine. oh, my gosh. >> brian: now turning to football, best and worst. for the best run, let's go to adrien peterson. the guy had a knee injury that was supposed to sit him out for a year. i believe he's healed. the 61-yard run is proof of it. the vikings, one of the surprise teams of the year. they win over the lions. biggest upset? or the best? cincinnati. i'm turning away now.
5:35am
they smashed the new york giants. maybe the time off will help the champs recuperate for an all around bad game that they experienced. bengals won. best win game goes to dallas. still alive after beating the eagles. going ahead and winning bay substantial margin. michael vick hurt, concussion. sat out. that's all dallas needed. that's a quick look at what happened yesterday in football. >> steve: let's talk about what happened last tuesday. of course, we're talking about the federal election. president obama, four more years. some suggested that the only way to stop obamacare would be to elect mitt romney. now that he's got four more years, there are a number of businesses, in fact a couple of days ago we talked to a fellow who has a bunch of appleby's here and he told brian and me that if obamacare continues, his business is going to be in big trouble. >> brian: he's got to cut the hours back to 30 because he can't afford his business model while giving everybody health
5:36am
care insurance. it's just not what -- i was a waiter, i never got health care when you were a waiter. >> gretchen: it affects small businesses who have 50 or more employees. in other words, you have to provide the health care or you pay the fine and many people are deciding to maybe not hire as many people or to pay the fine. lots of people trying to figure out what they're going to do. they know it will be one thing, which is more expensive. here is a papa john's franchise owner, judy nichols, onnds frier thoughts. >> we have 51 full time equivalents and the base year is 2013. so we have to manage down our staffing by four part-time or two full time people over the 2013 year from the beginning to the end or we qualify as big business and that minimum $40,000 tax and $2,000 per head, we can't afford that. peace just pizza. i was so ready for growth. we were going to add 100 jobs this year with the new pizza
5:37am
restaurants and even some grocery stores. there is just no money for it. i cannot pay my staff and pay all these taxes. there is only so much blood you can get out of a turnip. everest rapt you eat at is impacted negatively by this law. >> steve: for so many small business owners, this law is counter intuitive to why they got into business. they got newies to get bigger. the guy with the appleby's, he's really quite large. he's got a lot of employees. he was on our program on friday and said this. >> capital always finds its most efficient use. its most efficient use is not adding to overhead. its most efficient use is expanding a company and hiring people. so they pay their own health care. without a job, yeah, you need the government to give you health care. if you have a job, maybe it's not as important. and the reality is this will create less jobs.
5:38am
guaranteed. i bet my company on it. >> gretchen: lots of people who run businesses right now l it's a small business or ceo of a big corporation, you no doubt are having a lot of metings about how do we motorcycle this whole thing out with health care moving forward? many people argue that a lot of these big companies are not going to be providing health care down the road as we've known it. so that you will either have to go on the government mandated plan or figure it out on your own. there will be a lot of change, no doubt. >> brian: i'm curious to see hot negotiations -- we'll be talking about the fiscal cliff. they are talking about some type of business tax reduction and some type of corporate tax reduction. 22 minutes before the top of the hour, a great final 30 minutes. general petraeus calling it quits just days before the hearing on benghazi. was that just a coincidence or was the timing too convenient? a closer look next. >> steve: then what would do you if you were handed a death sentence? country superstar clay walker knows. he's living proof. he's here with his awesome song

>> steve: hurricane sandy hit nearly two weeks ago. so why are tens of thousands of people on long island, new york, still in the dark? needless to say, they are upset. look at this. >> more trucks! more trucks! more trucks! more trucks! >> steve: the long island power authority, lipa, offering a an embarrassing solution. telling victims to go on-line for a form that's going to speed up the process. how can they do that without electricity? wnyw robert moses is live in long island with the very
5:43am
latest. >> good morning to you. and good morning, everyone. this neighborhood is still in the dark, as are about 78,000 lipa customers on long island. this is why. you can see the damage still behind me. we're talking about 1800 or so people here in this town who still do not have power. more than two weeks or just about two weeks after the storm. over the weekend, protesters gathered here on long island to express their displeasure with how long this is taking to turn the power back on. according to lipa, about 935% of the customers -- 935% of the customers -- 95% of the customers who with receive power have it back. that is not high enough. lipa say 99% of the customers who can safely receive electrical power should have it back by tomorrow. but keep in mind, many people here on long island have suffered so much damage that they can't even think about getting electrical power back into their homes. that is the latest, live from east meadow, robert moses, fox news. >> steve: thank you very much. gretch? >> gretchen: thanks.
5:44am
there seems to be more questions than answers following the resignation of david petraeus days after the presidential election. did the white house know something before and choose to stay silent until after the election and so many more questions. joining me is the columnist for the "new york post" and fox news contributor, michael goodwin. so you are write this article saying like many people, there are so many unanswered questions here. do you think the white house knew before tuesday? >> well, if they didn't, they should have. the fact that the white house claims that only found out on tuesday about this investigation and general petraeus, which had been going on at least since the summer. so how does the f.b.i. investigate the head of the c.i.a., does not tell the leaders of the justice department, which is required to do under its own guidelines about sensitive cases, and how does eric holder then not tell president obama, oh, by the way, general petraeus is being investigated by the f.b.i.? >> gretchen: you think that would have actually affected the
5:45am
election results or is this more about benghazi is this. >> well, look, we don't know what it would have done in the election. i do think if benghazi clearly is an unresolved issue, having petraeus, who is a legitimate manner hero, having him come under suspicion during the campaign would not have served the president well under any circumstance. but ultimately, you're right. it is about benghazi because petraeus played a very important role in reaffirming the administration's false narrative, it is false that, a video sparked the riot and the attack. >> gretchen: for me this morning, that is the red hot question. why did general petraeus say under oath that it was the videotape? this is a guy who knows terror better than anyone else arguably. why? >> well, that's the question. because when he gave that briefing to leading members of congress, they all came out either perplexed or furious. this was long after the video had been debunked. the state department knew the
5:46am
first night that it was a terrorist attack. the state department later said in its own briefing, we never said it was the video. >> gretchen: he knows he's under investigation, so why -- just theorize with me. i don't would he say this? >> i think that's one of the big questions. was he being a team player? after all, this was the official white house narrative. it was the video at that point. and so the c.i.a. boss tells congress, oh, it's the video long after there is evidence it wasn't. so is he just being a team player? is he being incompetent in this case? i think that's one of the reasons why this whole thing has to be investigated. the f.b.i.'s conduct has to be investigated. the idea that the f.b.i. is investigating the c.i.a., these agencies are historic rivals and that they're looking at his e-mails and nobody in the c.i.a. knows this? the c.i.a. director's e-mails are being read and nobody in the c.i.a. knows it? it's not believable.
5:47am
>> gretchen: to think we had a lot of questions about benghazi before friday afternoon. nighcal goodwin, check out his columns on the "new york post." his doctor said he has eight years to live. 16 years later, he's one of country music's biggest stars. all right. ♪ demons on my right ♪ never ending battle ♪ it's a constant fight >> gretchen: clay walker here next to perform his first patriotic song. first, let's check in with martha mccallum for what's up at the top of the hour. >> good morning. we will speak in "america's newsroom" with michael hayden about the resignation of general petraeus. also k.t. mcfarland is here. she will weigh in as well, especially on whether the general will testify and what he will say. and the still suffering victims of hurricane sandy, where is the government in getting help for them? see you at the top of the hour.

5:52am
take care of me. that's why we're here today, for veterans day, first of all. and secondly, to spend tomorrow talking about care partners week. >> steve: which is what? >> which is where your care partner, your significant other, helps you deal with whatever disease you're going through. it's a very known fact in the medical industry that when you have a care partner, that helps you that you tend to do better. >> brian: talk about this album, first off. you mentioned -- you're part of this relationship, 'cause you bring in the money. >> steve: make it rain. >> brian: she's raising the two kids. >> gretchen: exactly. hats off to the moms out there. >> brian: off song dedicated to veterans. >> i wrote a song called "all american." and i'm all about being american. proud to be an american. love watching "fox & friends." obviously you guys are one of my favorite shows. that's why i wanted to come here today to salute our veterans with our song and talk about it was because of our veterans that we have the liberties that we have in this country. that's what the song is about.
